      Misi (neck) has not practiced during the Dolphins' OTAs thus far, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Misi, whose 2016 campaign was shortened to just three games due to a severe neck injury, still has some time before he can practice again, according to Dolphins coach Adam Gase. Upon his eventual return to full health, he'll be able to provide strength at outside linebacker as he heads into his eighth year with Miami.

  • Charles Clay TE - buf

      Although he's participating in most of OTAs, the Bills remain concerned about Clay's lingering knee troubles, The Buffalo News reports. "We are concerned with Charles' knee situation," said new coach Sean McDermott. "It's something we have to manage moving forward in order to have him on the field for us, which is important moving forward. He's a weapon for us."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Clay made it on the field for 15 games last season, but was a regular on the injury report with issues relating to his knee. While Clay has been a bit of a disappointment since the Bills signed him as a free agent two years ago, he's far better than the next option. Hopefully McDermott means they just need to be proactive in not letting it become a major issue through rest and being smart about it, rather than being concerned it could potentially keep Clay out of action.

      Williams (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Williams spent the majority of his 2016 campaign on injured reserve with a knee injury after failing to record a single catch throughout the first four weeks of the season. According to coach John Harbaugh, the procedure Williams underwent to repair the damage was rare for a football player, but the tight end is still expected to be ready for camp. Regardless of his health, he'll be subject to plenty of competition against a crowded tight end corps.

      Green (shoulder) has been participating in OTAs and getting time as the starting strong safety with Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker missing training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Green sprained his shoulder in the final game of last season, but it doesn't look like an injury to be worried about for the 2017 season. Green will likely have a reserve role, but it's possible he could be pressed into more action with both Geathers (neck) and Hooker (hip/sports hernia) sidelined in the spring due to offseason surgeries.

      Cruz signed with the Bears on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: After missing the majority of the 2015 season, Cruz maintained his health last year, recording 39 receptions for 586 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. The drop in production paired with a $9.4 million salary was enough for the Giants to part ways with the 30-year-old back in February. Now headed to Chicago, Cruz will look to stand out in a group of receivers that lacks a true No. 1 target. He'll be competing with new additions Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton for a spot behind Kevin White (leg) and Cameron Meredith on the depth chart.

      Johnson (back) has been a limited participant during the Panthers' OTAs this week, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Johnson, who underwent a procedure to repair a herniated disc earlier in the offseason, is on pace for a full return at training camp. The 30-year-old doesn't have much to prove in Carolina, so the team can gradually ease him back into action if need be.

  • Jaron Brown WR - ari
    • Thu, May 25, 8:57am

      Head coach Bruce Arians said Brown (knee) is already running routes at full speed in individual drills, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. "We're keeping him out of the team drills because I don't want to see him cut, but he's running routes full speed," Arians said. "He looks great. Actually, his computer numbers are faster than they've ever been."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Brown is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered in late October, with his partial participation in OTAs suggesting he could be ready for team drills by training camp. While Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown are locked in as the top two wide receivers, Jaron Brown might get a chance to push J.J. Nelson for the No. 3 job. On the other hand, Jaron Brown could find himself battling just to make the roster if he doesn't quickly return to pre-injury form, as the Cardinals have impressive depth at the back end of their wideout depth chart, where third-round rookie Chad Williams and converted running back Andre Ellington are joined by veterans Brittan Golden, Jeremy Ross and Aaron Dobson.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Tapper's back injury kept him sidelined for the entirety of his rookie campaign in 2016, but he's finally healthy and seeing reps at right defensive end.
